Along the genius of Antonio Meccariello, [with the "people"] at St. Crispin are two of the best shoe makers I have tried so far and always look forward to add to my "collection". Both do amazing job in term of both bespoke fit and the the aspect of the classical "aesthetic" and details.

A lot, is a long list. But IMO these do exceptional work yet I acknowledge that my opinion in general is perhaps a be a bit biased toward this two even if the rest in the industry are equally good.

Anyone with a StC G fitting is in luck today. We are clearing our old line of 105 in CRU 603 and replacing it with the same style in VNA 078 (VNA is much more easy to maintain for a fitring range).


As pictured below (actually my pair in 11.5 G). Another thing StC does great is scale up in sizes, few makers do this so well (EB and G&G comes to mind). Many makers have difficulties when you go up past UK 11, shoes start to look off to the eye.

Pretty! Any reason you stocked this line in G fitting?

We have a full size range in both G and F for UK 6-12. It's important we carry both as I want people on trunk shows to really be able to try out their proper size and it's just not possible if we do not carry G fit. A lot of Swedes have wide feet.

I would say without hesitation that this is, if not the best wingtip ever!

Does VNA crease less than CRU?

so tempting if not for the G (wide) fitting!
